Yasmin Alibhai-Brown: We Muslims who despair of terrorism

The admired Scots-Pakistani novelist Suhayl Saadi and his wife, Alina Mirza, who runs a Pakistani film festival in Glasgow, are dear friends. They got married at the Marriot in Islamabad, just bombed by Islamicist murderers who sent in a delivery of lethal explosives in a lorry, during Ramadan. Nice work, guys. Allah will surely reward you aplenty for the slaughter of the blameless, sent off with less ceremony than goats and chickens who, at least, are prayed for as their throats are cut. Ah but they only razed a temple of Western decadence, and many Muslims who worked or went there weren't "real" Muslims, only Shias and disobedient women, reprobates and sinners for sure.

Armageddon is on its way as Pakistan dissolves at its north-western borders into that lawless territory that is Afghanistan. American interventions, demands and military incontinence in the region bolster Islamic reactionaries and guerrillas.

India meanwhile, with many similar endemic problems and ruthless governance in Kashmir, nevertheless flowers economically and still holds on to democracy and fundamental freedoms. Sadly Pakistan "proves" what the rest of the world believes, and not without reason, that Muslims are incapable of decent leadership or progressive politics and move instinctively to political and personal tyranny.

Look around and the evidence punches you in both eyes. Saudi Arabia, Iran and various nations in the Middle East and most "Islamic" states elsewhere are failing entities where the people are either afraid or oppressing others. I, a Muslim who fights daily against the unjust treatment of Muslims in the West, have to face the blinding truth that although we have serious external enemies, more Muslims are hurt, wounded, killed and denied by other Muslims who feel themselves to be virtuous.

Hi Friends,

Recently i wrote an article 'Google is biased' on Propakistani.
Here is the link to my article:
http://www.propakistani.com/2008/09/17/google-is-biased/ .

In this article i raised the issue to have a Google Happy Eid Doodle for Muslims and Pakistanis.And asked Google to show it on Google Pakistan on the Eid day.

Happily i got a reply from Google Pakistan.They appreciated the proposal.According to some close sources we have made a buzz in Silicone Valley.Google is considering the Doodle for Muslims.

A fellow blogger Dr.Awab a.k.a Teeth Maestro also wrote a similar post.
Here is its link:
http://www.teeth.com.pk/blog/2008/09/23/google-doodle-muslims-pakistanis .He also pointed out the same issue.

But it's not confirmed by Google that we will see the Doodle or not.So what we have to do is this that if you want to see Doodle this Eid and all coming Eid's,write an article like mine's urging and asking Google to make a Doodle for Eid.

If only we all bloggers of Pakistan work together can make this a reality.

So please visit my article,leave a comment and write one on your blog too.

But please don't forget to link and ping back your article to my original article here as i deserve it:
http://www.propakistani.com/2008/09/17/google-is-biased/

So lets get working,make this a reality and gift this to our nation on this Eid.

Please forward this email and spread the word.

Thanks

Regards
